OVERVIEW
The AMX NMX-ENC H.264 Encoder with Recording is a hardware streaming video encoding device that allows you to stream video from a source device across the network in high definition h.264 video, as well as capture that video for later viewing.

The NMX-ENC encoder connects directly to source devices such as PCs, cameras and set-top boxes and streams the video across the network in unicast or multicast. Once video is on the network, it can be played back in a variety of situations such as on displays throughout a building, in a window within a digital signage message, or using a network media solution like AMX's Vision².

As well, the NMX-ENC encoder captures live video and saves the video recording onto an attached USB hard drive. Once the recording is complete, the encoder can be configured to automatically send the video file to a selected server.

COMMON APPLICATION

  • Connect to a camera or PC to capture corporate training or lectures to make it available live as well as record it for later playback.
  • Stream live TV to a digital signage player that support streaming video, such as the AMX Inspired Signage solutions, to provide live video within a message.
  • Stream and record events such as all hands meetings, press conferences or earnings calls to a variety of audiences watching both live and time delayed throughout the world on conference room displays, PCs, or mobile phones.
  • Connect to a video camera or live production switcher to record and stream a live event at a house of worship, performance hall, or similar venue.

FEATURES

  • Multi-Format Video Input — The NMX-ENC-1100 and NMX-ENC-1105 both feature a multi-format input to support digital and analog video sources
  • USB Hard Drive Recording — Attach a USB hard drive to record video while streaming
  • Video File Forwarding — Automatically forward the video file to a selected server when the device is finished recording
  • SD-SDI and HD-SDI Support — The NMX-ENC-1105 features an SDI input for cameras and other SDI sources
  • Audio/Video Pass Through — Allows encoders to be daisy chained together for low and high bandwidth streams, or to monitor your encoded source
  • Built-in Ethernet Switch — Install an encoder along with other Ethernet-based devices such as an Enova DVX or Modero Touch Panel in a location without having to install additional Ethernet outlets
  • Audio Level Meter — The front of the encoders feature an audio level meter making it easy to validate that user audio is being picked up
